Set of 11 pewter Christmas ornaments from Chester, Connecticut. The Chester Merchants Association began selling Christmas ornaments in 1992 as a fund raiser. Each year, a local artist, artisan, or group was asked to design an ornament. The 1993 ornament was designed by the world-renowned minimalist and conceptual artist and Chester resident, Sol Lewitt, who died in 2007. Leif Nilsson, another well-regarded local artist, designed the 1994 ornament. The 11 ornaments span 1992-2002. Each is 2.25" in diameter except that of the Chester Hose Company which is 2.25" by 2 and seven eighths inches.
